Last November, I stood in front of a judge with some paperwork in hand. This was the proof I needed to show the judge that I had paid my due to society and needed to be relieved of my six-month probation. In less than two minutes, I was granted just that — a reprieve. Or was it really a reprieve? I look back at the incident that brought me to this very point in my life — an about-to-be-ex-parolee :-D.
